The new 2014 Bentley GT Speed Convertible does not qualify as a hot debut at this year’s Detroit Motor Show because we had all its pictures and details before the show, and well, it is a GT Speed with the roof chopped off.
Still, everything with a 625 horsepower W12 engine is good enough to take another look at. Making its official debut at the 2013 NAIAS, the GT Speed Convertible boasts the title of world’s fastest four-seat convertible car.
The 625 PS (616 bhp) twin-turbocharged 6.0 litre W12 in combination with a close-ratio eight-speed transmission, uprated and lowered suspension and retuned steering, and not to mention a permanent all-wheel-drive system, give the car such amazing performance that it can reach 202 mph (325 km/h) without breaking a sweat.
Compared to the standard GT Convertible, the Speed version features exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels, dark-tint grilles and ‘rifled’ exhaust tail pipes. Inside its handcrafted cabin, the GT Speed Convertible features the Mulliner Driving Specification as standard, blending contemporary luxury with a distinctly sporting character.
